My son is now 9 months old. I'm curious what everyone's schedule is for their 9 month old babies? Everything from when they wake up, eating, activities, etc.

wow my daughters is a bit different!

7am wakes up 4oz bottle and cereal
after that she plays till we take my son to school we come home
I read a few books to her & sing 2-3 finger plays or songs.
9am takes a morning nap
11am wakes up eats lunch veggies & fruit with a 3oz sippy cup
I let her watch mickey mouse club house for 1/2hr then she runs
around in her walker as I clean and stuff and then she will play on the
floor tummy time (she is still just trying to crawl) or sensory things feeling
different fabrics or I watch her closely with dry noodles ect... and I say abc's
& count to 10 as we play and I read a few more books to her. (she loves books!)
1pm she takes a nap
2pm she takes a 4oz sippy cup (1 time a week i give her water down 100% juice) & eats a snack usually puffs or a cookie.
then we if the weather is nice we go to the community center and swing ect. untill
my son gets off his bus (we take him to school in the am he rides the bus in the afternoons.) then we go home she plays in her play pin as I cook sometimes she plays in her walker with her brother.
4:30pm we all eat dinner together. she will have meat veggies fruit & a 3oz sippy cup (I only use the Gerber meat baby food unless I blend her what we are eating.)
she watches the news with her dad & plays with toys on our couch then we will sometimes take a walk if the weather is nice or just play she plays a lot with her brother & chases the dog.
6:30pm she gets a bath
7:00pm plays in her high chair or will have some more puffs till her brothers done with his bath.
8:00pm gets her last bottle 5oz burps then goes to bed
she sleeps through the night sometimes waking but i just put her passifier back into her mouth & she goes back to sleep.

I use to work at a preschool so I feel like I want to work on her hand eye, motor skills & sensory skills more then teaching her to read (the my baby can read doesnt teach reading it just teaches memorizing witch itnt bad its part of reading but still thats a lot of screen tv time for a infent) but me reading to her helps with speech so thats why I read so many books and she loves them. also if she wakes at all through the night and wont go to sleep I will give her a small 4oz bottle she gets a lot of sippy cups but if she gets fussy i give her a bottle but she does great with sippys!

Hi Jodie,
I wouldn't be worried about how you feed your daughter everyone does different things. I have not started meat, yogurt, or sandwiches yet either. As long as they are getting enough breastmilk/formula and they are in a good weight range, she is fine. Milk is the best thing for them right now. Also, I do make my own baby food but I do not have so called "recipes" yet. I always steam his vegetables on the stove and puree them or now that he can eat more solid foods, chop them into bite size pieces for him (sweet potatoes, peas, etc. really anything you want, just make sure it is not a high allergen food, acidic and or gassy.) Also with fruit I will just puree up more harder ones like apples/pears and mix them with cereal. More softer ones like banana/mango I will again just chop them into bite size pieces.
Sorry if its all mumbled or mispelled, a little tired with a long day! Sorry you can't be home with your little one!
I will also be glad to share info about anything you do find about homemade foods or whatever! Thanks for the reply!

do you try breastfeeding him when he wakes up?? sometimes Ayden will cry when he wakes up Ill give him a bottle, as soon as he sees the bottle his eyes light up and he reaches his arms out immediately, to make it fully clear to me thats what he wants and no more crying

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Sorry for the misunderstanding, my son does for the most part cry when he wakes up but as soon as he sees me he is all smiles. I just figured he should be a bit more happy to get a good nap. I feel like maybe he just doesn't trust that I will come get him! :(

Wow I feel like I might be behind in the feeding schedule for my 9 month old son (next week). I have only given her some veggies and fruits and the cereals (rice, oatmeal), no sandwiches or yogurt or meats!?! I am also trying to make my own food for her, so far, so good. Her schedule is fairly similar to yours (Denise).
6-7am wakes up (breast feed-if it's closer to 6am since I am working full time)
8-9am cereal and fruit or veggie
10-11 am nap for about 1 hour
12pm - 1pm ish bottle breastmilk (5oz)
4-5pmish breast feed
7-8pmish bath
8-9pmish feed cereal and fruit or veggie
9-10pm breastfeed to hopefully get a full nights rest!? :)
Then usually like clockwork...
3-3:30am breastfeed

In between, playtime together, independently and I just started doing the Your Baby Can Read videos and flash cards.

I'd love to hear more on what your feeding schedules are for your 9 month old babies! I have a well baby check next week so I will be asking my pediatrician also for suggestions.

Denise, if you have any recipes that you'd like to share I'd love to hear them! :)
Thanks!!
PS I'm jealous that you are staying home with you babies... :(

Thank you for you help! My son has had a scheduale for a long time now but there is always room for improvement!
5-5:30 wakes up to breastfeed, then goes back in crib
7-7:30 wakes up again to breastfeed then cuddles/sleeps in bed with me until around 9
9:30 eats breakfast (1/2 banana-cut up, oatmeal and maybe some puffs)
After breakfast, plays in jumper and listens to classical music. We he gets bored or when I want to play we go on the floor with all his toys and put on Baby Einstein.
Around 11 or 12 he gets sleepy and goes down for an hour nap, could be longer, just depends.
Depending on when he went down, say 11, then he will breast feed when he wakes up, or if he goes down around 12 I will feed him then.
Whenever he wakes up he will get lunch (fruit, vegetable and grain) I have always made fresh baby food and have not started meat yet.
He will then play on the floor for a while with his toys while I get some other stuff done or finally eat my lunch, if I didn't with him.
Around 3 he gets sleepy and will either lay down with me or take a nap in his crib for about a half hour.
When he wakes up he will get a small snack (puffs, yougurt snack or fresh homemade juice)
When Daddy is home, he is alot more spoiled then when its just me and we just play with him or let him play independently which ever he chooses.
Then around 7-7:30 we get ready for bed and he gets a 4 ounce bottle, to wind down and is in bed around 8-8:30.
-Daddy is in the Coast Guard and has a very demanding scheduale so isn't home nearly as much as we would like (nothing we can do about it)
-Also we live in an apartment and have no park or nice yards (all made for dog pooping ~gross~) down to one car for a while so can't go anywhere but when Daddy is home we try to make it outside!!!!

Also if anyone can help he always cries when he wakes up from his nap and I don't know what to do about it. I have tried letting him know I will get him right away and just letting him cry for a while, nothing helps! PLEASE HELP!
Any room for improvement, let me know!
Thank you!

My daughter is 9 1/2 months old, and we don't have a strict schedule for her but we have more of a routine, I guess you could say.
She usually wakes up around 9am. When she gets up she hangs out with her dad for a couple hours while I sleep a bit more. Then she naps for about 30-60 mins anywhere from 11am-1pm. She will be awake doing whatever (eating, playing, cuddling) until around 4 or 5 when she will take her evening nap, for about 45 minutes. Then she is up for the rest of the evening until 9-10pm. She wakes up around 3:30am (almost like clockwork), I feed her, then she continues sleeping 'til 7am, then she comes and sleeps with me until 9am.
As for food and activities, we're just basically on a feed-on-demand routine, and she plays with me, with the dog or by herself when she wants to.

Hi there,
Here's my son's 9 month old schedule. He wakes up between 7 and 7:30 am. Bottle as soon as he wakes. Breakfast at 8- 8:15. Dressed for the day at 8:45. He watches blues clues and plays independently. Bed at 10am. Awake at 11 ish. Morning tea at half eleven (muesli bar and a piece of fruit) Then he plays independently for a while, we play with his trucks and have some floor play (tickling and rough play). Lunch at 1pm (yoghurt and a sandwich) Listen to some music and he plays by himself for a while. Depends on the day, sometimes we go out. At 2 pm he has a bottle and then sleeps. Up at 3ish, afternoon tea (biscuit and fruit). He just cruises around really. Dinner at half four. Bath at 5. Bottle and bed at half five. Down for the night.
